Watery Wednesday

The cormorants have flown south for the winter but I caught a few sunning on some warm, black buoys back on the 6th of October. I was told the black buoys hold oyster seed collectors.

 

St Joachim's Catholic church in Vernon River is seen in the background.

Very interesting image - so much to take in. Nicely done.
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, Beth. On the commute, as usual.
Nice to capture them!!
Shivers... for sure!!
Mary MacADNski: For some odd reason, I like cormorants. Many do not.

Lots of interesting stuff here, Mary.
Mary MacADNski: I looked at that view today. The leaves are all gone but for stragglers, like these cormorants were at the time. Half of the seed collectors have been sunk or moved and all the buoys will soon be gone. Ice would break the lines so the work all has to sunk.

Helluva Nina performance...I have not seen this before...
Mary MacADNski: Wasn't that incredible! When I said the shivers, I didn't say who would be doing the shivering.

What a great view and a wonderful place for the cormorants to warm up and get a meal.
Wonderful light on the church.
Mary MacADNski: The cormorants were all traveling south at that time. These stopped for a snack or sleep. Yes the light was good on the church through the warm haze. Thank you.
As Simone sings in the background, I fly away to another place...where all is well in the world. (sigh)
Mary MacADNski: She was so, so powerful!

Another seasonal migration takes place
Mary MacADNski: Yes, I like that they migrate.. They would never survive.

Just a few hangers-on to catch the last of the warmth of the north. The church looks very attractive.
Mary MacADNski: That is it, exactly, the hanger oners. Sleepyheads.
The church adds a fine backdrop to this scene Mary
Mary MacADNski: It looks pretty good there, thank you.
Oyster seeds eh Mary. It's all a mystery to me.
Mary MacADNski: Here is more.I looked at that view today. The leaves are all gone but for stragglers, like these cormorants were at the time. Half of the seed collectors have been sunk or moved and all the buoys will soon be gone. Ice would break the lines so the work all has to sunk.

Superbe vue, j'aime beaucoup.
Mary MacADNski: Thanks very much. It is different now with all the leaves gone.

Mary MacADNski: Thank you, It may have fit a Sunday.

Perhaps the cormorants are puzzlingly how to get at the oysters;o)
Mary MacADNski: I an not sure if they are successful but they like to sleep and dry on any perch such as this. I would thin them fouling the equipment might be worse.

A very nice scene!
Mary MacADNski: All the leaves are gone from this scene today.
Altogether a very nice picture, I like the church in the background.
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, Brian. I would guess the building would catch your eye.

It is great to catch that last glimpse before they all fly south.
Mary MacADNski: I stopped for that reason. I had noticed another location had been vacated already so was surprised to see these.
this is a wonderful composition of the cormorants on the black buoys and the church above the shore Mary...
i have seen miles of buoys in the Killary Fjord in Ireland... the water runs from 28 to 42 meters deep providing a clean environment for both salmon and muscle farms....petersmile
Mary MacADNski: Oh what PEIsland aquaculturists would give for deep water like that.
Love the trees changing colour and the little church in the background. I think with the little lake it adds a wonderful effect.
Mary MacADNski: I looked there today and there are no leaves but for some stragglers.
